I have been working at Upwork full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The culture here is so fun to be a part of. Everyone pretty much knows each other, food and drinks are always stocked and catered. Management is great and is always looking for ways to improve. Feeling of a large company but with the aura of a start up.

Cons

Too much food means I never leave, also parking is occasionally an issue (if that's even an issue)

Advice to Management

Keep pushing us to provide great work, we can reach our goal!

    I have been working at Upwork full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Business opportunity appears interesting as oDesk is market leader.
    oDesk believes in work from home, and that is a big plus for me. Many of my co-workers work effectively from remote locations.

    Cons

    Lots of old technology in use, and people are reluctant to implement change.

    Advice to Management

    Managers rarely give feedback.
